Right now in beautiful Cologne, Germany, the games industry is abuzz as thousands of people arrive for the annual Gamescom convention and finally get their hands on some next-gen games. Both Microsoft and Sony are in attendance, showcasing why their new console is the one you should choose come launch day. That launch date by the way, Sony confirmed, is November 15th for Playstation 4 in US/Canada (Nov.29th in Europe).

I have been around for a few console launches in my time and I have to say, the Xbox One and PS4 both have a really strong line-up available day one. Arguably the best launch line-up consoles have ever seen.  There is a lot to choose from so you better start thinking about those Xmas lists a little early this year.
